External Links

The external links plugin for WordPress lets you process outgoing links differently from internal links.

The external links plugin for WordPress lets you process outgoing links differently from internal links.

Usage

Under Settings / External Links, you can configure the plugin to:

  • Process all outgoing links, rather than only those within your entries' content and text widgets.
  • Add an external link icon to outgoing links. You can use a class="no_icon" attribute on links to override this.
  • Add rel=nofollow to the links. (Note: You can use a rel="follow" attribute on links to override this.)
  • Open outgoing links in new windows. Note that this can damage your visitor's trust towards your site in that they can think your site used a pop-under.
  • Turn on "autolinks" functionality.
  • Domains/subdomains you wish to Exclude from processing.

Auto Links

The Autolink functionality automatically converts urls to hyperlinked urls in post/page content, excerpts and text widgets.
